Superman and The Witcher star Henry Cavill had a “dream come true” while visiting a Nottingham company popular across the globe.

The actor, 38, is a huge fan of Warhammer and visited the Games Workshop HQ in Lenton on Friday, February 18.

And he said the trip left him “giddy with excitement” as he was able to meet staff there and pick their brains on the extensive lore of the products which fans adore so much.

He has previously spoken about his love for the famous Nottingham company during an interview with the BBC’s Graham Norton.

After his visit to Nottingham, in a post on Instagram, Cavill said: “I finally made the pilgrimage to Warhammer World, and what a day I had!

“I don’t often get giddy with excitement, but getting to meet the likes of Andy Smillie, Mark Chambers, Wade Pryce, and Aiden Daly and being able to pick their brains about minute and elusive parts of the lore, while wandering the halls of the exhibition centre was a dream come true.”

The video of The Witcher star wandering the areas of the company has amassed more than one million views with fans keen to see what he made of the trip.

A number of staff members have posted social media pictures alongside the actor during his recent visit.

Some of those who posted spoke about his love of Warhammer.

Looking at Games Workshop’s financials, it’s clear to see they are incredibly popular across the world.

The table top gaming firm’s headquarters are based in Lenton and has 529 retail stores.

The company, which is now valued at around £3.8 billion, was founded in 1975.

The firm began life as a mail-order business for fantasy role-playing games – it now makes tens of millions of models a year.

Recent financial results showed it has performed particularly well in North America in recent years following increased investment.
